This restaurant was actually a part of our hotel (like Hi-Res). We had drinks at the outside cafe part and didn't realize it had a good restaurant downstairs until I went on the internet to find a good restaurant in our locale. We enjoyed the very good dinner and great waiter - Mudi!

This restaurant is one of our hotel' s restaurants and although the hotel is extremely nice this restaurant leaves a lot to be desired. The place was very crowded last night, and we were seated in a small dark basement room. Our sever was okay but a bit inattentive. The menu is very traditional Italian and includes pizzas. I ordered... More

We had just Italian breads then a ravioli and a fettuccine with minced meat and ragout. Both were lovely. Device was poor and it was hard to attract waiters. The wine list is great. We had Montepulciano which was delicious. No desserts and cold thin coffee that was disappointing. The tables on the via were wobbly and chairs were too.... More

Excellent Italian cuisine with attention to detail and focus on the customer. Helpful to anyone needing assistance for selection of gluten free diet and special allergy concerns. It is recommended for family as well as romantic couple experience. Very good “house” wines. It is well worth more than one visit – ask and focus on any special entrée that they... More

As host of the Hotel Valadier, it was hard not to try it, and it was a very nice way to end a long day visiting Rome. A drink at the Bar while we waited for a table and then a very good pasta, fresh ingredients and above all, and excellent and very friendly service staff
